Happy 70th Birthday to the Vinyl LP album!

(Pet peeve: the number of posts, especially on Pinterest, referring to the fella on the left as Jerry Scheff. Nope. The uncropped version of the photo DOES include Jerry toward the left, playing bass, with Marc on guitar now in the center. Know your session players, kids!
